Does the dish come with a radome? If not do you have an idea when one would be available?

Re: monster dish MD-5G37-BETA

I would like to know about the radome or possibility of an RF Armor. Because of the way it pieces together I'm not sure an RF Armor would work on it. We currently use the 34dbi AirFiber dishes for backhaul but we had to put RF Armor on them to cancel out a lot of the surrounding noise to hit high modulation. I would love to use some Monster Dishes as long as there is a way to shield them.

I know for many of our sites we cannot install an antenna unless we can provide the site owner with a spec sheet that lists dimensions and wind loading factors.

 

I also had a suggestion for another antenna. Why not make a dual polarity "Orange Peel" antenna. The Orange Peel antenna is used in microwave systems and has a much lower wind loading then a comparable dish antenna. Would also allow to be shipped in smaller pieces and assembled on site like the MD-5G37 antenna.

All the connectorized 5.8 and 4.9 radios, eg the AC prism, AF5xHD, AF5x.

Re: monster dish MD-5G37-BETA

"Dimensions" are for fully deployed antenna or package dimensions?
